Not common: Discuss with the surgeon. Let him go over MRI pictures with you and what he is doing, what you need to do and expected timeline. Be informed.

About an hour: Most impingement surgery should be done in about an hour. If the rotator cuff needs to be repaired, then an additional hour may be required.
